Ankara is Turkey’s second largest city, after Istanbul with a little more than 4.5 million inhabitants. The capital of Turkey derives its name from Angora and Ancyra, as it was formerly known. These names refer to the Angora wool shorn from Angora rabbits, the Angora cat and the Angora goat. Ankara became Turkey’s capital in 1923 when the Republic of Turkey was founded. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk also had his headquarters in Ankara since 1920 - this being one of the reasons as to why the capital was changed from Istanbul to Ankara. Ankara is a very old city with a rich tradition and history which can be observed in the various Byzantine, Ottoman, Roman, Hellenistic and Hittite archaeological sites. The town’s old centre is littered with the ruins of the old citadel, a true delight for visitors that want to experience history with a touch of lively hospitality.
